Thumbs up emoji does not work anymore


If I type “:+1:” into the chat, or choose the thumbs up emoji from the list, it is written in plain text into the conversation. Placing the mouse over the text, it shows me “//tel:1”. This happens after an upgrade to the newest version 5.0.4. It seems, that it will be detected as phone number.

I can confirm this issue.

We are working in our Message Parser, so a lot is improving and also breaking :grimacing:
